Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has appointed Fran Inman, senior vice president at Majestic Realty Corp., to the California Transportation Commission.

Inman, 64, has focused on infrastructure and transportation issues at Majestic. She also headed the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce’s transportation committee before becoming the organization’s chairwoman in 2009.

Inman also serves on the state Public Infrastructure Advisory Commission and the San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership. She is a founding member of FuturePorts, which seeks to improve the infrastructure at the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.

The California Transportation Commission meets monthly to dole out state and federal transportation dollars for projects and determine the state’s transportation priorities. Board members earn $100 for each meeting day and must be confirmed by the state Senate.
